Why Boycott McDonald’s?

McDonald’s Corporation is a major corporate partner of the Jewish United Fund / Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. It was honoured during JUF centennial celebration in 2000 as a first tier corporate partner to the cause of Zionism.

Through its Israel Commission, the JUF “works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for Israel; monitors and, when necessary, responds to media coverage of Israel”.

The JUF runs “Partnership to Israel” programs with the city of Kiryat Gat and the rural areas of Lachish and Shafir. Every year it provides financial aid annually to help the development of Kiryat Gat and to promote further illegal settlements there. This city is built on stolen Palestinian land — the lands of the villages of Iraq al Mansyiya and al-Faluja whose residents were ethnically cleansed in 1949 in contravention of international law.
